The Apple IIc; Great for Gaming, Greater for remaking ‘Star Wars’ trailers…

Oh, the Apple IIc; a classic personal computer from back in the day. It was released in 1984 as the compact (which is what the “c” stood for) device which was essentially a complete Apple II computer setup (without the display and power supply) squeezed into a small notebook-sized housing. Even though it was discontinued in 1988, many enthusiasts have continued to find new and interesting uses for the Apple IIc (like with MANY other devices no longer in-production). For example, this shot-by-shot trailer remake of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is ONE of those interesting things

Twitter user Wahyu Ichwandardi created (or, RE-created) the teaser trailer to The Last Jedi by using a Apple IIc and Dazzle Draw, a bitmap paint program also released in 1984. Ichwandardi project weighed in at a whopping — for the time — 6MB, and was stored on 48 floppy disks. For the sake of comparison, check out Star Wars Episode VIII’s original teaser trailer just to see exactly how EXCELLENTLY Ichwandardi nailed it:
